Anyone else thinking that maybe the 15 mill soon to be spent on Costa should of been used on Ben White?
I'm pretty sure the 15 could of got him at the time or fairly close. In fact I'm dead certain Brighton would have snapped our hands off!

Ahhhhh the benefit of hindsight corky
I’m not sure we knew how good he was going to be this season! Also don’t think Brighton wanted to sell him last summer! Would be great if we could find a way to keep him! I think he is going to be some player!

Cork You friends with the Seagulls Board of directors? Think you're wrong. FFP means we couldn't buy until the summer anyway. I think we can get White in the summer but will take £35m to £40m cash up front to do so. QSI and promotion means it's possible.

Only way we will buy him is as George says we get promoted. Can not see him in the championship next season, think Brighton may try and hang on to him for next season then sell. promotion would give us a chance.

I said soon to be spent George. Loan to buy mate it’s not that complicated.

They wouldn’t put the loan to buy agreement in place cork, it was one of the stipulations Brighton set.

25 Nov 2019 10:51:01
Cork incredibly unlikely Brighton would let White go, if they did it would take a Harry Maguire like bid.

Whilst Brighton have more centre backs than we’ve missed chances this year, they have zero debt a billionaire owner in Tony Bloom so it would take a ridiculous offer. The minimum being what George previously quoted. The one thing that may change the situation is if we were to be promoted and Brighton relegated. Talking to season ticket holders, they’re not that keen on Potter as Manager and despite buying Maupay struggle to score enough goals 60/ 40 them being dragged into relegation this year.

That being said Nathan Jones who brought White through at Brighton said he was the best prospect they had ever had at the club, so still wishful thinking I fear.

Didn’t realize they Martyn. So Leeds did actually try and buy Ben White? It’s a shame we couldn’t get a deal done as I’d imagine his value has at least tripled with his performances for Leeds.

Cork we tried to agree a loan to buy but Brighton weren’t having it.
